Smaller bathrooms will benefit from wall-mounted taps, which do not take up space on the basin, and provide adequate space between the tap’s spout and basin’s rim. However, most major repairs will require breaking the wall or panel open, so keep this in mind when designing your bathroom.
The simplest and most common place to install a tap is on the washbasin; the sink will indicate the best placement for taps. However, this arrangement tends to accumulate the most dirt and grime due to its close proximity to water. On the plus side, you’ll save on moving or extending the pipeline.
These taps are placed at the side of a (typically) round sink. If you have double washbasins, place the mixers so the two are mirror images of each other – it saves space and looks sleeker, too.
